Baby Activity – Teething

baby activity teething
B got his first tooth around 4 months and baby N sure is chewing on her fingers and drooling a lot. It made me start thinking about creative ways to help relieve some of the discomfort that comes with teething.

For smaller babies like N, the cold teething rings seem too big to really chew on and are difficult for her to hold on to.  Once B was a little older and on the move, he wasn’t interested in a teething ring either.

Creative Ideas for Smaller Babies:
cold, wet washcloth
homeopathic teething tablets (Hylands) – Liz of a belle, a bean, & a Chicago dog and Shannon of Tales of our Baby Gator, Gillian Grace
A net teether with partly frozen fruit inside – Shannon of Milk and Cuddles
The Amber Necklace – Angie of Wife, Lawyer, Mother
Buzz N Bite – Natalie of Mommy of a Monster (I mean Toddler) and Infant Twins
Fill pacifier with water and freeze – Tonia of M T Heads Full Hearts
twist a wet washcloth and freeze – My 3 Little Ducks
A baby sock knotted on the end with an ice cube inside – The Great Adventures of D and Q

Creative Ideas for Older Babies:
frozen blueberries
yogurt straw – put yogurt in a straw with a clip on one end, freeze, and let your child chew the yogurt out
frozen peas – JDaniel4’s Mom
frozen mini bagels – Christine of 2 by 2
frozen pancakes – My 3 Little Ducks

THANK YOU for posting this. While visiting my cousin last week, her 5 month old was teething and it made me dread the day. No mama likes her baby being in pain! In fact, I'm going to forward this post to her.

I just gave you an award over at my blog :)

Thankyou! This is great, we may be using some of these very soon. Hopefully. Because that has to explain my little one's change in behaviour over the past few days. Otherwise I'm in big trouble!

great list...both of our little guys had teeth at four months.

A hard pear works (once they are on food) - if you are concerned with little ones biting a piece put it in the freezer for a bit (don't completly freeze) first.

I don't have a baby but I've heard frozen waffles (like eggos) work really well because the little squares catch all the drool.
